Product Description:

When Chrysta the magical tree fairy comes across the terrible monster machines that are eating the forest, she accidentally shrinks a construction worker to fairy size. Once small, and with the help of Chrysta and the other fairies and creatures of the rainforest, he realizes he must help save the land and not destroy it.

Plot Synopsis:

A cute little sprite named Crysta lives in a beautiful tropical rainforest. One day she flies above the forest's dense foliage to glimpse the outside world, and while there, she becomes infatuated with a human named Zak. He's a nice enough fellow, but he also happens to be a workman on the logging machine that threatens to destroy the lush and magical forest. Crysta decides to shrink young Zak down to her size so that he can see the world he is about to demolish from a different point of view.
A romance develops between the two, and the couple eventually join forces with some of Crysta's wacky rainforest friends to battle the humans. Unfortunately, our heroes have other enemies too: an evil woodland spirit called Hexxus has arisen from his slumber and, in between snacks of toxic waste, plans to destroy the forest.

Production Notes:

  • Color by DeLuxe.
  • Marks 20th Century Fox's major re-entry into the production and distribution of animated feature films.
  • Director Bill Kroyer was trained at Disney in classic hand-drawn animation and was nominated for a 1989 Academy Award for his short film "Technological Threat."
  • Glen and Helen Threlfo are credited as "Rainforest Consultants."
  • The animation crew actually travelled to the Australian rainforest, so they could see the scale of the trees and canopy, as well as the creatures who lived there, and take photographs on which to base their drawings. This is quite unusual for an animation crew, which rarely goes on location.
  • Many of the well-known actors and musicians in this project agreed to work at minimum scale.
  • The following citations are listed at the end of the credits roll: "On behalf of the actors and producers and in appreciation of assistance given by the Smithsonian Institution, FAI is directing funds from the proceeds of 'Ferngully' for projects of benefit to the world's environment."
  • "Special thanks to the United States Postal Service for their efforts to raise environmental awareness."
